At The Leigh Academy, we are committed to working closely and supportively with families and the local community. This approach we believe secures the highest levels of student success and creates a rich community that encourages lifelong learning.
This section of the website is designed to ensure that students & parents have the necessary information to enable them to work in active and successful partnership with the Academy. Parents should be aware that there is a range of Policies that guide the Academy’s work. The Academy has clear expectations regarding uniform and behaviour.
The majority of letters are posted home with copies being placed on the website. A range of Academy publications as well a number of useful links provide support and overview during a student’s time at The Leigh Academy.
